D2 Technologies Announces vPort VoIP for Freescale PowerQUICC II Pro

D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded software platforms that power IP communications, announced the availability of D2′s vPort VoIP software on Freescale Semiconductor’s MPC8323E PowerQUICC® II Pro System on Chip (SoC) platform, aimed at today’s most advanced integrated access devices (IADs) for the small-to-medium-size business and home-based office. D2′s vPort on Freescale’s multi-protocol processor enhanced with its e300 Power Architecture core solves a key problem for OEMs and ODMs: the delivery of rich voice features, performance and quality for triple- and quadruple-play voice/video/data/wireless access devices without increased power requirements.

Attendees at the Spring VON.x 2008 conference, being held March 17-20, can be among the first to see a demonstration of the communications solution in Room K of the San Jose (CA) McEnery Convention Center.

“OEMs today need to meet the three Cs of the communications marketplace – convergence, compatibility and cost – and the MPC8323E has been designed specifically to achieve these benchmarks with minimal power consumption,” said Nikolay Guenov, Power Architecture portfolio manager for Freescale’s Networking Systems Division. “With D2′s optimized support for voice performance and delivery, the SoC offers manufacturers a way to economically deliver the additional functionality and faster interfaces required for devices and today’s varied business applications.”

D2′s vPort software platform provides advanced VoIP telephony capabilities such as protocol signaling, soft DSP voice algorithm processing, and advanced voice quality assurance technology such as jitter buffer and packet loss compensation. When combined with Freescale’s MPC8323E converged communications processor, the platform offers manufacturers a quick time to market to meet the rising demand for triple- and quadruple-play gateways, integrated access devices (IADs), SME and SOHO routers and other networking products.

“Freescale’s MPC8323E processor with integrated QUICC Engine(tm) technology leads the industry in its support of a wide range of communications protocols for next-generation access devices, particularly in its ability to minimize the power requirements for bandwidth-intensive processing tasks,” said Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing and sales at D2 Technologies. “By embedding vPort’s elegant design for voice and voice quality, the resulting SoC is a highly-scalable and cost-effective solution for a variety of new devices that meet the needs of today’s small businesses.”
